The iPOS4808 BX-CAT intelligent drive offers a very compact solution for the control of rotary or linear brushless, DC brush and step motors of powers up to 400 W, with a 48-V rated voltage. The product is the first BX drive with an EtherCAT interface. The unit can operate either as a standard EtherCAT drive that accepts the CAN application protocol over EtherCAT (CoE) or as an intelligent drive that can be programmed to execute complex motion profiles directly at drive level using its built-in motion controller and Technosoft Motion Language (TML). Equipped with two feedback connectors, the product can be used in dual-loop control applications where motor and load sensors can be single-ended, differential or since/cosine encoders.
